Winchester Model 1895 Theodore Roosevelt Safari Rifle Set
Commorating the 100th Anniversary of Roosevelt's 1909 African Safari
We have created a unique set of 1895 rifles that are exceptional in every way. These have been made available through the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. Only a few remain.
The rifles are a set of Winchester Model 1895 rilfes in 405 caliber, configured and embellished to commemorate Theodore Roosevelt's famous 1909 Safari. These are top tier rifles in every way -- including a leather double gun hard case, special literature and even a copy of Roosevelt's book African Game Trails reprinted by the Peter Capstick Library. The attached photo has some information but it may be a bit difficult to read. To get more information you can also e-mail the RMEF at: email@example.com.
Here is more information on each individual rifle.
Model 1895 Roosevelt Anniversary Custom Grade

The Custom Model has Grade III/IV walnut with deep engraving of many African big game animals on a blued receiver plus extensive gold-toned embellishments. A special matte finish along the top of the barrel is patterned after one of Roosevelt’s Model 1895 rifles on display at the Cody Firearms Museum in Wyoming. Extreme polish, precision fitting and finishes adorn this breathtaking rifle commemorating the 100th anniversary of Theodore Roosevelt’s African safari of 1909. It is only offered in a limited number of 1,000 two-gun sets with the High Grade Model (shown below).
